Description
Senator Pamela Wallin hails Left Out as "…a most reasoned rant and a potent piece of political history…a must read. It’s a powerful call to action and a reminder for both the governed and those who seek to lead them--that playing small serves no one.” This is the story, Wallin says, “of Saskatchewan becoming a place where hope really does beat fear and where today, any party that claims moral superiority rather than a better idea does so at its peril." Edgy and thought-provoking, Left Out takes aim at the NDP,Saskatchewan’s natural governing party since the 1940s. Outspoken broadcaster and writer John Gormley pulls no punches in an entertaining and informative account of Saskatchewan politics that is both a lament and a challenge he issues to a new generation of voters. From the hundreds of thousands of people who fled the province to Saskatchewan’s decline in influence, Gormley pins this and more on successive NDP governments, particularly the Calvert NDP of the early 2000s. With a keen political insider’s eye, Gormley analyzes the elections of 2003 and 2007, Saskatchewan’s finances and nearly a dozen political scandals which rocked the province in the early 2000s. The book also features an engaging and funny prescription for fixing Saskatchewan’s historic bad attitude and leaves no one unscathed, from powerful union leaders to a business community that often allows its own victimization at the hands of the political left. Left Out challenges all of us to re-engage in politics for the sake of our Saskatchewan. The book will appeal especially to political junkies who love the chatter on coffee row, and the whispers in the halls of the Saskatchewan Legislature.
